FASFA: Free Application for Federal Student Aid

All students are encouraged to apply for federal and state financial aid, whether or not you think that you may be eligible. Applying for financial aid is free when you use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Information from your FAFSA is used to determine your eligibility for all types of financial aid – grants, work study, and student loans.

We recommend that you apply for financial aid each year by the first part of March or as soon as you complete your federal income tax returns. The sooner you apply, the sooner you receive notification of your financial aid eligibility. Some aid programs have limited funding (work study, Perkins Loan, Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant) and are awarded on a first come-first served basis.

Please visit the SCSU Financial Aid website for information on applying for FASFA: http://www.stcloudstate.edu/srfs/finances/fafsa.aspx
